Meridian Acupuncture & Herbal Medicine strives not only to make its community healthier, but also to make the planet healthier. One of our main goals is to operate our clinic as Eco-consciously as possible.
Our beautiful floors are made from recycled vinyl while our walls are insulated using recycled blue jeans and cotton. High efficiency bulbs light our walls, and our herbs and tea leaves are composted after cooking. Herbal formulas are individually prepared on a table made of reclaimed oak from a barn in Lexington, Kentucky.
Meridian has chosen to be as paperless as possible in an effort to prevent using the hundreds of pounds of paper required to keep physical copies of patient records. New patient forms are available for download on our website and may be submitted electronically. iPads are used to maintain and update patient charts, run transactions and email receipts.
When paper is necessary, such as for business cards and educational materials, we choose paper made from post-consumer waste and printed with soy-based ink. Our natural cleaning products, paper towels, and other office products have been chosen for their organic and environmentally friendly properties.
We believe respecting nature is essential to running a good business and delivering premium healthcare. Harmony with the environment is a time-honored tradition at the very core of this natural medicine. The ancient adage “Be good to your body and it will be good to you” extends to the world around us: Be good to the Earth and it will be good to you.
